However, in Season 13 of RHOBH, fans were made privy to some of the bigger hurdles in Kyle and Mauricio’s marriage. Since filming, Kyle and Mauricio have confirmed that they separated in the summer of 2023 — though they have added that they continue to share their home and are working on their marriage. 

Here’s what to know about Mauricio.

After 27 years of marriage, Kyle and Mauricio confirmed that they separated in the summer of 2023. Kyle discussed the situation at BravoCon in October 2023. 

"We love each other very much, and we are family no matter what happens, and we have a very strong family unit,” she said during the Las Vegas event’s “Livin’ in Beverly Hills” panel, which was moderated by Zuri Hall. "We're just trying to figure it out. We know that we love each other." 

Mauricio shared his take during the Nov. 16 episode of the Skinny Confidential Him & Her Podcast. “Everyone wants to know what’s going on with my marriage — like, I do too, you know, we’re normal people," he said. "We’re normal human beings going through a struggle, we’re going through issues like everybody else does."

"There’s no playbook for how to deal with it," Mauricio continued. "We’re humans, and it doesn’t change on a daily basis. If we're separated that means we're giving each other time to allow things to happen.” 

Who are Mauricio Umansky’s daughters?

Kyle and Mauricio share three daughters: Alexia Umansky, who was born in 1996; Sophia Umansky, who was born in 2000; and Portia Umansky, who was born in 2008. Mauricio is also a stepfather to Farrah Brittany, who is Kyle’s daughter from a previous marriage.

Farrah and Alexia currently work with Mauricio at The Agency. They also appeared together on the series Buying Beverly Hills.

Sophia is a recent college graduate and Portia is a teenager with an interest in beauty.

What does Mauricio Umansky do for a living?

Mauricio is known for taking the real estate world by storm, but that wasn't initially where he saw his career going. After graduating college, Mauricio began a clothing company called 90265. "I started the fad of oversized T-shirts on girls wearing leggings," Mauricio said of his company in an August 2015 interview with Worth. Mauricio said his company "did quite well" — so much so that he was able to sell it when he was 26 years old.

While figuring out his next career move, Mauricio realized he could combine his love of sales and architecture to pursue a career in real estate. Soon, he got a job at the luxury real estate firm Hilton & Hyland, which was co-founded by his brother-in-law Rick Hilton. 

Kyle's ex-husband Guraish Aldjufrie gave Mauricio his first sale with his $7.5 million property in Brentwood, California, according to Worth. Mauricio's clientele would only get much more star-studded after that, boasting names such as Lady Gaga, Michael Jordan, and Arnold Schwarzenegger.

He managed to become one of the country’s highest-producing realtors before opening his boutique brokerage, The Agency, in 2011.

Mauricio owns and acts as CEO for the global boutique real-estate brokerage, The Agency, which he founded in 2011. These days, he has over 800 employees and the company is aggressively expanding into new territories. The company has over 100 offices in over 10 countries.

Its accolades include being named the Top Luxury Brokerage at Inman Golden I Awards, Inc. 5000’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies in America for seven years, and No. 1 among RealTrends Top 50 Firms in Average Sales Price: $2.5M, according to the company website

According to Forbes, The Agency had achieved $41 billion in total sales volume by 2022. The firm has represented some of the world’s most noteworthy properties — like the Playboy Mansion in 2016 — and they’ve had several listings above $100 million. 

What is Mauricio Umansky’s nationality?

Mauricio was born and raised in Mexico until he was six years old and moved to the United States. His family is also Greek and Russian.

Mauricio is Jewish (check out his adorable Bar Mitzvah photo!), and Kyle converted to Judaism before the two got married. Their daughters also speak Spanish. 

Mauricio’s mother, Estella Sneider, is a psychologist and sex therapist that has appeared on RHOBH. His father, Eduardo Umansky, is also in real estate, having worked at Hilton & Hyland with Mauricio before joining him at The Agency.

In 2023, Mauricio competed on Dancing With the Stars in Season 32, alongside fellow Bravolebrity Ariana Madix from Vanderpump Rules. Mauricio was paired with dancing pro Emma Slater, but the two were eliminated in Week 6 of the competition.
